I worked at McKenzie Tank Lines full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

it's better than having to turn tricks or be a drug smuggler

Cons

they are closing terminals and selling trucks. Most of their payroll and after-hours dispatch jobs are having to be out-sourced to Costa Rica just for this company to stay in business... Look at where they were 10 years ago and where they are now... the end is near.

Advice to Management

Close the doors and sell out while there's still something to sell...

    Pros

    Great pay ! 0.50cpm. Meal money$ 20 breakdown pay starts immediately I believe it was 15 or $17 an hour layover pay with $50 overnight pay stay in free hotels with no trouble when needed. McKenzie really is all about driver comfort waiting time starts two hours after appointment time then you are paid hourly mechanics are excellent experiencing from Southport CNC over-the-road dispatcher are really friendly and works with the drivers on what they want I can go on forever it's really a great company for drivers in the trucking industry of Bad Company's

    Cons

    Dental and Health not so good insurance.
    Hours for appointment bounce from night day .lots of waiting for loading and unloading. BUT ! Like I said you're paid to on the downside really there Volvo's who wants to drive Volvo .lol

    Advice to Management

    Not just McKenzie but all companies need to be more sympathetic to the driver they are not robots it is very important to get plenty of rest sleep and exercise so try to schedule appointments around an individual driver's needs if the driver Works days schedule him for days if he works nights schedule for night don't schedule around the 11 and 14 hour rule just because his 10-hour break it up doesn't mean he can get up and go to work there's no off switch on a driver you can't go to sleep at the push of a button and it's hard to wake up with a push of a button let him get his sleep for hours down in the morning 4 hours down in the evening 8-hour sleep that leaves 12 hours work time if he spends half of his 12 hours waiting to get loaded or unloaded or breakdown don't expect to make the appointment time

    Pros

    Hmm a recruiter will call you give you low down on pay which is percentage of the load. Tell you drivers make 1100 to 1400 a week. Insurance in 60 days.

    Cons

    But the truth is they are sad company. Who can not keep driver's. Just like rest of the sad trucking companies out there. Offering sign on bonuses. If your company was worth a darn. You shouldn't have to offer a sign on bonus. The recruiter is full of it. Hook you in and drop you like bad habit.
